Re: Karma is everything!

Conclusion: What matters is not how much you meditate, your moral or spiritual discipline. Conclusion is quite deterministic, and it's goes under Wrong View. You can change the weight of your good or bad kamma, it's a metter of proportion between wholsome and unwholesome deeds, like a spoon of salt...

Re: Let's emulate the Arahants, let's make everyday an "Uposatha day"

People hide things as they believe in their constructed self and they believe in their constructed status and they hide things if they think that their perceived status will suffer if those things are revealed. Agree. Open mind have nothing to hide, because he knows directly that there is no owner ...

Re: Let's emulate the Arahants, let's make everyday an "Uposatha day"

As I've shown, it depends on how this is done. When someone speaks too much about himself and not about the matter in a neutral way - then, with high probability, he does that on conceit basis, which is a hindrance for his personal practice and progression on the path. Some questions that i hope yo...

Dear Zom,

I would like to ask you a question that I hope you will understand the meaning.

Not necessary... We can't judge about others people's motivations, until we can read minds. 8-) I will stop here :anjali: PS: But you are reason, if one's motivation is to help others and arise motivation in them, but there is almost envy and jealousy as result, so perhaps one should stop his sharin...
